So for all you doubting Thomas’s out there that think Ramsey isn’t good enough I hope you saw his 40 yard, yes 40 yard screamer last night against a team that had 8 English premier league players.
This wasn’t a shit team he scored against, this team would be a top 6 team in the EPL, anyway, it doesn’t matter who you’re playing against a 40 yarder is a 40 yarder and this one flew into the back of the net, so we finally have a player that can shoot from distance and has the confidence to do so.
I expect he’ll get a bollocking from Arsene for not passing it, but boy how good was it to see that from and Arsenal player.
Steven Gerrard wrapped up in Cesc, this kid has to be given more playing time, Arsene, pretend he’s Flamini, Denilson or Song, those guys got/get extraordinary amounts of games to prove themselves, give this kid the same.
As Wenger said, he doesn’t look at passports (unless he wants a captain of course) and if they’re good enough, they’re old enough, Ramsey ticks the boxes and Wales is close to France (it’s not really but for this argument it is).
Onto Rio, the latest England manager butt kisser comes out and says what I’ve been saying about England and in particular Beckham, for years.
‘People were worrying more about what the players were wearing and where they were going, rather than the England team, we became like a circus with the whole WAG situation’
For ‘worried about what we were wearing’ read Beckham with his mohican haircut and his stupid hat in Japan, he was more interested in that, than the game, and so were the press, and for the WAG’s, look no further than the twit he’s married to, single handedly she almost turned me off England.
So at last someone came out and said it, all for the wrong reasons of course, he’s now trying to endear himself to the new boss, this should have been said when the idiot Sven and Nancy were around, not now, still he wants to be captain and his unashamed crawling may not do it, but it proves me right in what I’ve been saying has been wrong with England for years.
I mean it’s like Wimbledon, why do the cameras keep going to Tim Henman’s wife? Is she playing? It’s this celebrity culture we love and is why we are £3 billion in debt, because the players have become bigger than the game, and that my friends will not last, the mess it leaves us with, will though.
The FA are determined to let Beckham set the all time caps record, he keeps coming on for 10 minutes and to me it makes winning a cap farsical, especially when you think Capello could be giving others a leg up.
Bobby Moore is probably turning in his grave, Beckham, Charlton, Billy Wright and Moore in the same breath is a joke.
Roberto Duran the world welterweight champion in the 80′s used to train in Panama’s most notorious prison before a fight, England need a bit more of that and a bit less of the night clubs.
Still this is our day and Aaron Ramsey’s day in the sun, well done young man, and when you get your chance, let rip, that was a wonderful shot and a fantastic goal.
Just over three days to go Grovers and I’m getting excited, Theo’s turn tonight to make a pretty good week out of a boring one.
Have a great Wednesday!
